Great Speech Inc. Strengthens Its Presence Nationwide with Medicare Enrollment

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- Great Speech Inc., a national virtual speech therapy company committed to improving health equity for America's underserved seniors, today announced its affiliated clinical group Great Therapy Group LLC, has significantly increased the breadth and depth of its provider network nationwide by receiving its own Medicare number.

"With over 10,000 people turning 65 each day, this expansion will align Great Speech's therapists to support the senior population from the convenience of their home and on their schedule. No need to weather the storm, ask for favors or try to figure out how to get a ride to your nearby clinic," says Avivit Ben-Aharon, Founder and Clinical Director of Great Speech.

Our goal is to assist with social determinants of health since numerous studies indicate that communication skills of older adults are strong predictors of their mental health. Poor communication skills can not only evoke anxiety, depression, and stress in older adults but also predispose them to social isolation and loneliness (*citation).

Individuals eligible for Medicare Part B in 41 states can request a free screening today to determine eligibility and start services immediately.

Great Speech commonly treats: Alzheimer's & Dementia, Articulation disorders, Autism Spectrum disorder, Cognitive Communication Disorder, Head & Neck Cancer, Hearing loss, Language disorder, Parkinson's disorder, post-Covid complications, Stuttering, Stroke & Aphasia rehabilitation, Traumatic Brain Injury, Voice Disorder & More

The Medicare Resource Center Now Open in Santa Barbara

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- The Medicare Resource Center - created by AMA Insurance Agency, an unbiased insurance agency that works with major insurance companies to offer Medicare supplement and Medicare Advantage plans - has opened its Santa Barbara location at 121 South Hope Ave., Unit A101, in La Cumbre Plaza. The store's insurance agents are dedicated to educating Medicare-eligible individuals on all of their options at no cost.

Choosing a Medicare plan is one of the most important decisions any American 65 and older needs to make. It is also one of the most confusing. Unfortunately, in this time of Covid-19 it is also harder to find answers due to closures of Social Security offices, Senior Centers, and Libraries. But not anymore.

Due to the complexities surrounding Medicare enrollment, The Medicare Resource Center provides impartial advice while highlighting different benefits and premiums from a variety of insurance companies. Licensed agents offer in-store appointments, as well as over-the-phone and safely done home appointments to aid eligible residents in finding the best insurance plan for their needs.

"It's a much-needed resource, particularly for those just turning 65 who have lots of questions and are being inundated with aggressive marketing campaigns from health plans that all look and sound alike," said American Marketing Administrators President Neil Booth. "This unique Resource Center will help consumers discern the different types of Medicare insurance available to them (Medigap, Advantage, Prescription) and explore Medicare plans that best meet their specific needs, preferences and budget."

The new Medicare Resource Center is particularly timely as the current pandemic has created a new collection of Medicare-eligible individuals seeking coverage-seniors who chose to continue working past age 65 and now find themselves suddenly unemployed due to layoffs or business closures.

"These newly uninsured seniors comprise one of the tragic but seldom talked about consequences of the coronavirus," said Booth. "These seniors had coverage under their employer's health insurance but now need to quickly enter the individual insurance market and shop for a Medicare plan. The Medicare Resource Center can help them through the process so they don't lose precious time, becoming Medicare eligible with appropriate coverage."

During the one-on-one appointments, agents explain Original Medicare, then discuss how Medicare insurance plans like Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplements, and Medicare Prescription Drug Plans work. Agents also provide a full review of prescription drug plans to ensure that residents are not overpaying for their prescription drug coverage.

The Medicare Resource Center works with most national and regional providers of Medicare products.

To learn more about Medicare eligibility, residents are also invited to attend one of many free 45-minute-long information webinars. Call 888-600-1432 for more information, or to make an appointment to talk with an Agent.

Sarasota Injury Lawyer David Goldman Offers Insight into the Impact of a Trump Administration on Obamacare and Medicaid for Consumers

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Sarasota Injury Attorney David L. Goldman, of Shapiro Goldman Babboni & Walsh, responds to clients' concerns about the impact of a Trump administration on healthcare coverage.

"As an attorney who often represents clients in desperate need of quality health care but with serious insurance coverage shortfalls, I have repeatedly heard may clients express concerns over how the presidential election will affect their coverage. Essentially many clients want to know, what is the future of Obamacare under a Trump administration?

There has been much speculation as to the future of Obamacare as well as the future of Medicare and Medicaid following the election of Donald J. Trump as our next president. Initially, it was thought that Obamacare would be scrapped entirely, although there were few details about what might replace the Affordable Care Act. That conventional wisdom was then placed in doubt after Donald Trump's recent meeting with President Obama which seemed to indicate that President-Elect Trump might be amenable to keeping parts of Obamacare intact.

With the proposed appointment of Congressman Tom Price of Georgia to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), a clearer outline of what future changes to health care law has begun to emerge. Price drafted a bill called the "Empowering Patients First Act" which would end Obamacare, and his appointment to HHS would likely change existing Medicare, Medicaid and health insurance law dramatically."

Attorney Goldman, citing an article published by the Washington Post, summarized the issue by stating, "The bottom line will likely be that individuals who young, healthy, or affluent may see their premiums decrease, while those who are older, sicker and poorer will probably see an increase in their health insurance premiums. Additionally, based on Congressman Price's past actions and statements, doctors may be allowed to charge more money to senior citizens and no longer be bound by Medicare rates. A rolling back of the expansion of Medicaid under the Obama Administration is also anticipated."

About Attorney David L. Goldman:

Mr. Goldman is a member of the American Association of Justice, The Association of Trial Lawyers of America, and the Southern Trial Lawyers Association. Mr. Goldman is an Eagle Member of the Florida Justice Association and The Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers, and received the prestigious Legislative Leadership Award by that organization in 1997.

David Goldman has a long-standing commitment to the community and has served as a board member of many civic organizations. He has worked extensively with the Gulf Coast Latin Chamber of Commerce, the Sarasota African-American Chamber of Commerce, Second Chance Last Opportunity and the Westcoast Center for Human Development. He has also served on the Board of Directors of the Sarasota-Manatee Jewish Community Center and has been a director and member of the Endowment Fund of his local synagogue.
